St Stephen's Basilica, Budapest

After taking a countless number of pictures at Heroes' Square, we went to the Museum of Fine Arts which is located right at the side of Heroes' Square. The museum was built between 1960 and 1906. It houses a collection of international art including all periods of European art. The museum is currently closed to the public for renovation until March, 2018 (expected date).

We hopped on into our tour bus again and continue our morning city tour in Budapest. Love how the name of the street is written on the wall in Budapest.

We made another stop at another historical spot in Budapest, St Stephen's Basilica. As you can see from behind, the church is very huge. St Stephen's Basilica is the largest church in Budapest and it can house 8,500 people inside the cathedral at the same time.

The bus can only drop us at the back of the cathedral, so we had to walk for a while to see the front side of the church. Since we came in the autumn, a lot of yellow trees to be spotted along the road. Love it.

After a few minutes of walking, we have finally come at the front door of St Stephen's Basilica. The church houses Hungary's most sacred treasure, St Stephen's mummified right hand, the Szent Jobb (re: Holy Right Hand).
